The /*Minutemen*/ controversy began when Caltrans removed the group's sponsorship signs posted along a two-mile stretch of Interstate 5.
The request to remove them came from state lawmakers Gil Cedillo and Joe Coto, but last June, a federal judge ordered Caltrans to restore the signs. A lawsuit is still pending.
The Minutemen support strict enforcement of immigration laws and have been accused of fostering border violence and discrimination against Latinos. They're also known to have volunteer patrols operating along the U.S.-Mexico border.
